WE WON. After a five year battle, the UK High Court agreed with us: general warrants defy 250 years of common law jurisprudence.
The #Antarctic #ozone hole finally closed in late Dec after a record-breaking season (also in the Arctic) due to meteorological conditions and continued ozone eating chemicals in the atmosphere.

Today's #Covid19Cymru figures are slightly up on the days over the Christmas period (the 2 days' figures released yesterday), but that's likely due to less testing happening (less people presenting themselves for testing) overChristmas.
7-day average: 2370 - DOWN 41
R(estimate): 0.89 - UP 0.01
I don't think we can read much into the small rise, because of the time of year. Christmas will have distorted the 7-day case average on which this is based. Crucially, it's still under 1.

I mentioned yesterday that I was doubtful of press reports of #Ceredigion (and in particular #Aberystwyth) being a hotspot. I still doubt that. Ceredigion has 19 new cases reported today.
7-day average: 25.43 (DOWN 4.71)
14-day average (probably a better guide): 20.86 (DOWN 0.14)
Aberystwyth north had 0 cases yesterday; Aberystwyth south 3. I don't have today's data yet. But that doesn't suggest an outbreak. I recommend Lowri Williams' web site for more detail.

Today's #Covid19Cymru headlines:
R falls below 1
The latter is the best news of all, though we must bear in mind that this is only an estimate and is dependent on the reliability of data.
There were 2161 new cases reported today. That is a little lower than I would have expected, though it is possible that the effects of the latest lockdown are beginning to show through (but I wouldn't expect that for another couple of days yet).
7-day average: 2671 (DOWN 69)
